TECTION OF SOLDIERS Union Men Reluctant to Strike While Negotiations are Proceeding—Many Outsiders will Work. (By Associated Press) LONDON, Aug. 19—The strike de clared by the Amalgamated Society of railway servants and three allied societies was attended with compara tively light rioting today -hough the afternoon brought reports of blood shed at Balonly. Wales, where troops fired upon mobs, killing two and wounding a third person. Shortly before this news was receiv ed here the home office issued an optomistic bulletin on the strike sit uation. It read: "Perfect tranquility and order pre vailed throughout the London district. Reduced but affective train service.is operated at all stations in all parts of London, and is working at its full ac tivity with the exception of lighter men who are still on a strike. No serious rioting is reported from any (part of the country although' there have been disorders at various points. The lord mayor of Liverpool reports that he is being loyally supported by magistrates, officials and a large num ber of citizens. Three thousand spec ial constables have been sworn in at Liverpool." Disorders mentioned by home secre tary Churchill were cheifly between the strikers and police in northern towns.

Even some of the union men being reluctant to strike while negotiations were proceeding. Four unions adopt ed resolutions not to strike until some decision has been arrived at between the government and the leaders and railway managers. LONDON, Aug. 19—Railway centers were closely picketed by representa tives of the unions but these were prevented by the soldiers and police from having any intercourse with the men at work. The railway stations presented a rather deserted appearance during the forenoon, most of the porters being, out. Few persons attempted to travel and the usual rush was confined to those lines operating suburban serv ice. The great central lines which were completely paralyzed yesterday re sumed operation today. The mana gers being successful in moving a few trains in and out of London. The Northwestern railroad, upon which a large proportion of} &nen remained loyal, maintained a good service and the company in a manifesto thanking their employees, announced that all who refused to strike would be given double pay during the strike period. The Great Northern railway also kept up a fairly good passenger serv ice, but like other lines running north was unable to accept goods. These features of the strike affecting as they do the working classes helped to make the strike unpopular with those not directly concerned. Workers are suf-" fering much more than others as all roads have been compelled to discon tinue the usual cheap fares to work ingmen, and the inability of the latter to get to their work has created in some instances a hostile feeling to ward-the union. The strikers are meeting with more success outside London.
